Twitter, a new email account for crime tips and a statewide web site called CanYouId.Me are a few of the new methods Clarkston police are using to nab criminals.
The department is posting photos and videos of crime suspects online in an effort to get the public’s assistance in tracking down people caught on camera, said Sgt. Josh Daniel. Two recent photos of people suspected of committing a fraud at BiMart and a theft at Walmart have been posted to the website CanYouId.Me.
Clarkston police are using the technology tools to partner with the public and keep residents informed, Daniel said. The department is also looking into partnering with Washington’s Most Wanted to provide more up-to-date information to the public.
Additional info and links can be found on the city’s web page and the police department’s Twitter account, Daniel said. Twitter users can follow the department @ClarkstonPolice.
